The past couple of days my eating has been awesome. I have been eating veggies and everything! Lots of stirfrys with lean meat and green veggies, little oil, low fat sauces...delish.
But today, I'm sick. I was grumpy and feeling gross and I went to the bakery and had a pie and a caramel slice for lunch. Now I feel grosser, but I just wanted it and you don't get between a sick me and my pie. I will be making good choices for the rest of the day (stir fry for dinner, fruit snacks) to try and make up for it. AND because I do know that when I eat junk I feel worse even though I crave it and think it will make me feel better. Grrr, I'm mad at me.
And I don't know if I am sick still (last week I was sick for 2 days and I haven't been feeling 100% since) or if I'm sick again. Who knows, I'm just sick :( But the boy has the man flu, so guess who doesnt get a break? Me! Gotta look after the helpless male despite my own sickness!
My mummy is visiting for the weekend... She can take care of me in my sick state!

I did it...sorta...
I ran for 10 minutes total, but my intervals were a little skewed. I did the first two 2 minute runs fine, no problem (but they were downhill...I may have timed it that way...you can't prove a thing!) but after that things got a little...hurty? My ankles felt like someone with giant hands was squeezing my ankles, so there was just heaps of pressure. Very, very weird. So I did my third interval and only made it a minute. I stopped and stretched. Nope, not helping. So I did my second minute of that interval then I split my fourth interval up into two 1 minute runs. I had to, my ankles were too sore. I did my last interval for the full 2 minutes after taking a 5 minute walk break, then got home and stretched. The ankles are feeling better now, but I have no idea whats going on! I warmed up for 10 minutes so I don't think that was it! Runners, give me your feedback! But the upshot is, I ran for 10 minutes but it was in a different configeration then originally planned.
In other news, I'm additced to dried cherries. They are like crack to me. They are soooooo tasty and they are curing my sweet craving nicely. Cherries are my favourite fruit, but the season is sooooo short! I know, I know, fresh fruit is better, but these will do nicely as a junk food substitute!

Sorry for the 2 posts one after the other. 2 seperate issues so I wanted to post them seperatly.
Loose 5kg - I lost 3kg
Start running - Done!
I didn't do as well as I wanted and my eating wasn't the best, but I definatly made progress!
Loose 5kg - Be under 77kg by the end of September
Keep running and sign up for a 5k
Start cross training - Look at biking or swimming
Make healthier choices
Eat out less often
Here we go folks, another month begins! Can't wait to read everyone elses progress and goals.
As promised, a duckling
This little guy fell into a drain behind my work. The chef rescued him but the Mama duck took off, so he was abandoned. Someone needed to look out for him, so it was me! I took him home for the night. I gave him a bath to get the drain gunk off him, but he didn't like water (WTH, he is a duck!), dried him off and put him in a box with some towels and a wheat bag so he could be warm and comfy for the night. He escaped a couple of times but eventually went to sleep for the night. The next morning I took him to the SPCA birdwing where he joined his cousins, the other abandoned ducklings. He was sooooo cute we wanted to keep him but I don't think my cats would have been happy with that!

Yesterday I was giving my friend a ride to school. We had agreed to go walking after uni together but I forgot my shoes, so I told her that I would have to skip this afternoon but would try and bring my shoes on Friday. She was asking questions about my shoes (I thought she was interested in getting new shoes) and she asked how much they cost. I'm not shy with money so I told her that they cost $240. OMG you should have heard the questions and comments on that one...
Thats very expensive
Who needs to spend that much on shoes?
Why did you pay that much?
What a rip off
Right. I told her that I was trying to get serious about running and I didn't want to take chances with my body so I got good quality shoes that fit and gave me the support I needed. More comments. Right. I told her that I was wanting to run a 5k in October so I needed good shoes and she needed to respect my choices (FFS they are only shoes!!!). Then under her breath she said...
Thats not that far.
Are you freakin kidding me? Really? I'm giving you a lift to school, after going out of my way to pick you up and said I'll walk with you twice a week so that you can be motivated and you thank me with that comment.
I went nuts. I went ballistic. How dare she discredit what I have been doing? I thought she was my friend but she obviouslty isn't. I told her that she was a witch with a B and they I didn't appriciate her comments. This is that same person who told me that I was unhealthy because I don't eat to a timetable.
Grrrrrr, I'm so mad at this person. She went on to say that I misunderstood and thats not what she said. Sorry sweetheart you can't backpedal your way out of this b****y comment because the girl sitting in the backseat heard everything. (This girl is constantly doing this, saying something and then when no one agrees or she gets called out says that isn't what she meant and she mis-spoke.)
I think she must be jeleous. Why else would she constantly be on at me about fitness stuff? I don't bring it up to just anyone (I'm still in the closet) so I, for some unknown reason, thought that she would be interested and supportive since I know that she is trying to work out and eat better too.
Her comments really hurt me. I started getting negative. I had just done an awesome work out and I started thinking that it wasn't good enough. I started thinking that I should skip classes and go on another run, really push myself. 5K? Thats not very far, I should be able to do that now! These thoughts are damaging and luckily my other (lovely, angel) friend snapped me out of it and brought me back otherwise I would have come home and ran until I passed out.
